Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Those are adorable ties but probably too small for my dog He's a Chesapeake Bay Retriever/ Chow Mix. My son would love the plaque in his room though

Eema-le said...

I would love to win the ties. I love pugs, but I love my Chihuahua Linus best of all, and he LOVES to dress up.

Three Pugsketeers said...

Ooo, the boys need a tie set! My favorite christmas cookies are the decorated sugar ones. The more frosting the better! My favorite schristmas song is 'Carol of the Bells'. It's always so pretty!

Three Pugsketeers said...

Oh and I love pugs because they are PUGS! There are tooooo many reasons that pugs are just the best dogs ever but here are three for you; Ickis, Pearl and Tank (my three babies!) ;)

Jeanne said...

Cute stuff, we are partial to Rat Terriers but pugs definately have their own personalities. And that "Snort" of theirs is too cute.

My favorite cookie is Sandbakkles: (recipe to follow)


My favorite Christmas Song has to be JINGLE BELLS

SANDBAKKELS - NORWEGIAN SUNBUCKLE COOKIES
3/4 cup butter at room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg white
1 3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup blanched ground almonds
4 unblanched almonds, finely chopped

Thoroughly combine butter, sugar, and egg white. Mix in remaining ingredients in order given.

Note: you may use a few drops of pure almond extract in this recipe if desired (not too much). A very nice variation is to use a tablespoon of Amaretto di Saronno. Try a portion of the dough with one flavoring or the other, and see which you like best.

Cover dough and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.

After dough has chilled, preheat oven to 350°F degrees.

Using Sandbakkler cookie tins or other small cookie molds such as small tartlet pans, press chunks of dough into the bottoms and sides of each mold.

Place the molds or tins on a cookie sheet which is smaller than the size of your oven and bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Turn molds upside down and tap gently until cookies are released from tins.

my favorite christmas song is "and the bells rang" by bing crosby, and my favorite cookie is the candy cane cookie!!

Emilyjo said...

Super cute! Count me in!

Kim & Ryan said...

I love it! The ties are just hilarious.

I love pugs because they are just like little humans. My husband travels a lot and they keep me company and entertained 24/7. I'm never lonely because of Franco and Lola. =)

Sarah Stride said...

My favorite cookies are shortbread cookies. Yum!!

Kat said...

Who doesn't love pugs? No one I want to know! Love that print!

Sara said...

The dog tie set is the cutest thing I've ever seen...my dog would look so cute in it!!!

mrsCraftEgenius said...

A woman after my own heart! I just rescued a pug and didn't know how I lived without him..My favorite part - his snorkeling and/or snores..SOOOOO adorable...

Sandra y Coco said...

Hi! I love the Pug Plaque!
My favorite cookie is not a cookie really but sort of a cake (a little harder than regular cake) that my aunt in Peru prepares every Christmas and sends to me with my mom. I don't have a favorite Christmas song because all of them make me feel in the mood of the holidays. I love pugs because they are pugs!! Coco makes my life very special, just being himself and loving me as his human and caretaker (and feeder). It is incredible how he can sense things that are going around, it is like having a best friend by your side UNCONDITIONALLY.

Chris said...

I LOVE the dog ties!!!

I LOVE the Hershey Kiss cookies!!

Pug(s) and Bugg said...

I'm loving the look of your blog!!! SO Christmasy!!!

My favorite cookie is a tie- either chocolate haystacks (chow mein noodles, marshmallows, and peanuts covered with melted chocolate and peanut butter) or brownie cookies (brownie mix, oil, eggs, and peanut butter chips... so easy!)

My favorite Christmas Songs are all the songs by the Trans Siberian Orchestra. It is so moving to listen to while driving around looking at Christmas lights.

I love pugs because they LOVE to LOVE us humans, who rarely deserve all the love they give us!!!!!!

Jenphotogb said...

I have always loved pugs...but I have never had the honor to live with one... yet!! My Hubby is almost convinced our Gt Pyr would love to have a pug friend to live with. Your handpainted plaque is very cute!

Kimberly said...

I don't have a pug, but I am sure this would fit my dog and look so cute for Christmas pictures!! And my favorite cookies are these things my mom calls "crack cookies" (because they are so addictive). They are made with white chocolate, oatmeal, and craisins. Yum!!

SimplyFabulous said...

I love the ties! they are so cute.
Sugar cookies with icing are our favorite cookie for Christmas.

Kali said...

I'd love the chance to win this gift. Thank you for your kindness!

My favorite Christmas song is a toss up between "Merry Christmas from the Family" and "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas!"

Sally said...

My favorite Christmas cookie is a springerle (anise flavored cookie)! Except, I don't know how to make them!

Meadow said...

I love pugs because our neighbors used to have like five of them and they were the friendliest dogs I ever met. And so snorty.

I love the dog ties. My dog would be mortified, my daughter would be thrilled.

pigbook1 said...

favorite cookies.... I don't have a favorite, I like them all, but my husband's favorite is hermits

Childfree Trophy Wife said...

Wonderful giveaway!!! I don't know anyone around here that has a pug but I think the way their tongues curl more up than down is so cute. And the snorting, who doesn't think that's cute and funny? My doggie would love for me to win the tie/collar set and then post pictures of it all over the place for everyone to see what a cute doggie I have that I dress up. My favorite cookies are the Nestle Toll House chocolate chip cookies, you know, the recipe that's on the back of every bag. I don't have any one favorite Christmas song because they are all classic and you get to hear them all being played everywhere during the season so I get to enjoy them all.

Hippie Family... said...

My favorite cookie is an italian seed cookie that I can't spell the name of and can't find the spelling on line. my favorite song is anyting by Dean Martin, Christmas or not :D
I love Pugs cuz there so cute and mostly my friend Karla's pug..

Rather Be Whistling said...

I love all dogs, especially big ones. My German shepherd would look slick in the tie. Thanks for the chance to win!

The Fruid said...

Omg, the ties are so cute! My favorite cookie is milk chocolate chip with macadamia nuts :) I have an Aunt that makes them every Christmastime and I'm the first one to raid them each year :)

Kelli @ Gohn Crazy said...

Oh those ties are too cute!! They are DEAR! I love that you can switch them out with the holiday!

My favorite Christmas son is Silent Night. :) And pugs rock. ;) Beagles and Doxies do too though.

RubyJunes said...

oh goodness! those doggie ties are a hoot!
Can't choose a fave cookie--love them all! LOL! But Christmas songs...Silent Night and Away in a Manger. Merry Christmas!

Joan said...

HOORAY!!! Another Puggie Mom!!! So, you ask...why I love pugs? There are just so many gazillon reasons but mostly because they are so lovable!!!

I LUV the pug print! Count me in too, please.

Pug Hugs,
Joan & Skippy

SunnySusan said...

Sarah said...

Favorite cookie (today) is snickerdoodle!

Michelle said...

I don't have a Pug but I have a Puggle. She's absolutly adorable and a bit smaller than a Pug! I love the Pug Plaque!

PugNYC said...

please help us: http://pugnyc.blogspot.com/2008/12/tonight.html



Much Love,

mudpies4all said...

My best friend has two adorable pugs, Molly and Mabel, but we're beagle people ourselves. Our boy Copper would certainly look handsome in a tie!!

zees5 said...

These ties are so cute. My 4 year old loves to wear ties so could you do them for him if I win? izazbz at yahoo

neeter said...

HA! My favorite Christmas song is "Mary did you Know?" My favorite cookie is frosted sugar cookies (any
time of year)

Our pug's name is Agatha. She's fawn and apricot (and a hot mess, but that's another story) I like her "puggle snuggles", can't sit down without her. I dislike her pug snotty sneezes.

I would choose the plaque because I thin she would eat the ties. :)

katelin said...

i lvoe pugs cuz their faces are soo adorable!!

The Giveaway Diva said...

i wish i had a pug!! aww so cute!!!

2girls said...

My fil has wanted a pug fot the last 10 years. This is one I could give him! Great item.

Cheryl said...

I just got a little 14 week old yorkie poo, and he would look adorable in your ties. What a cute idea! You can see him on my blog!

Digital Misfit said...

My favorite cookie is and always will be my mom's shortbread thimble cookies.
My favorite Christmas song is Carol Of The Bells - always puts me in the festive spirit!
And of course I love pugs (though my chubby rescue mutt here is adorable too!)

Ali said...

Oh, I love both prizes. My mom has our pug now, and she is almost more in love with her :)

Tiffany said...

Oh, my word. My husband hates it when I dress up the dogs, but those are stinkin' CUTE! I would LOVE them!

Brooke said...

I love the dog tie set for my Mother in laws dog! How darn cute is this! Love the idea!

Thank you so much for being so sweet!

Thanks
Brooke

Emmi said...

This would be absolutely lovely to win and I hope I do because I think would flip!

Thanks so much for the chance too!

aurore said...

I LOVE pugs too. We can't have a dog right now but if I could it would be a pug so i want that painting. Very cute.

Jessica said...

One of my good friends has a pug, Spencer, and he is the cutest. He's also more well-dressed than me I think sometimes! I love peanut butter cookies!

bex said...

Wow, these are totally tremendous. If I don't win, I'll have to have a shot at making my dog one of these. She'd look seriously smart in a tartan tie, that's for sure. She's a cattle dog, but she's still into accessorizing.

My favorite cookies involved not much more than peanut butter and choc chips, and I made them when I was a teenager with my mum, and neither of us can remember the recipe for the life of us. it's torture! My favorite christmas song is a hillbilly bluegrass 12 days of christmas parody, which makes me laugh every time. And I love pugs, because it's so easy to tell when they're happy or sad - just look at the tail. Curly! Straight!

tammiemarie said...

I adore that painting! The ties are pretty sweet too - I don't suppose they'd fit a labrador? OK, painting it is! Thanks for the generous giveaway!

Rachel said...

Hi Punchy!! I love pugs because they remind us of the true meaning of Christmas - unconditional love, overwhelming joy about small things and that FOOD should never be turned down.

stepstep said...

OMG - Loving that Pug painting!! Pugs are my favorite doggies & have been since, well, forever!! They're the cutest doggies I've EVER seen! I want a bazillion of them, but I don't think my kitties would be too happy about that! I would LOVE LOVE LOVE this painting & this would be the Pug my kitties would be ok with us having :)

bonobo said...

I love pugs because they exude personality. Thanks for a great giveaway!

Je said...

I have a 2 1/2 year old pug and he brings me such happiness and giggles! Thanks for a great contest.

Joan said...

Too cute! I have a friend for whom this would make the perfect Christmas gift!

Rhiannon said...

I don't have a pug. But I do have a raggamuffin that looks like a pug who decided to become a hippy. He needs a collar and tie to dapper him up. :)

Clover said...

Hi Punchy!
Wow, look at all these comments!! Everyone loves your stuff! Did you make that pug plaque? It is pretty! Mom says I shouldn't be allowed to enter any more contests because I win more than she does. I think she is jealous.
But I wanted to tell you our favourites anyway: Christmas cookie - Aunt Blanche's shortbreads for mom, and cheesy ones for me, Christmas song - O Holy Night for mom and ... Jingle Bell Rock for me. :)
Love Clover xo

Breanna S. said...

my pug sammy would love a tie collar

pugslet said...

We have a pug. His name is Pugsley. Original, I know. What's not to like about a pug? They are not really dogs, you know. They are like little people in baggy dog suits. We would love to win this giveaway. Thanks.

Vanna Snyder said...

I love pugs because they are such good cuddlers and serve as little heaters when they lay next to you!

Buckstop319 said...

i know the perfect pup to wear one of these. thank you for including me!

LeAnn said...

How can you not love pugs? They are adorable! My favorite Christmas song is Oh Holy Night, and my favorite cookie - any cookie ;)

Nevis said...

Did I tell you I got the outfits? They fit the puggies PERFECTLY and will look great in our Christmas photo. I'll make sure to show you the picture once we take it (this weekend).

Knit and Purl Mama said...

Pugs rock! Thanks for having the contest!

I like gingerbread cookies. this is my fave time of the year!

Kym said...

Favourite cookies are anything homemade. Hmmm ... Christmas Song ... Jingle bells keeps coming to mind. And the pugs? Well we have 2 dog-obsessed little girls here, so any breed of dog is loved in this house. They'd love the little ties, for their toy dogs though.

Ashley Ann said...

I do, I do love pugs! My pugly little girl goes by hand banana. I love her squishy face and how she snorts when she drinks too fast!

Julie said...

What a great idea! Very cute!
my dog is a liver spot Dalmation she is lovely. My friend has a Pug, Bagheera. All o her pets have Disney names. :)

sandyandcosmo said...

We love to dress up our dogs for the holidays and those ties are too cute!

sweetwilliam said...

Hi, we have a pug - he is all black and called Salty Sea dog - Salty for short! We actually love bulldogs but my eight year old chose a pug and when he came to live with us we fell in LOVE!!
I love a good oatmeal and raisin cookie with hot chocolate and i have to say that i love "I saw mommy kissing santa clause" but "silent Night" also brings a tear! The collars are too cute!

The Devil Dog said...

Mom loves Russian Teacakes. YUM! As for why she loves pugs, because pugs want to love you back and snuggle on you and other dogs are not like that. And not nearly as smart, either.

Roxy

Jillian said...

So can you make my husband a people sized version of those ties...LOL!! He's not a tie-wearer. But my minpin is!!

Let's see...favorite cookie--soft oatmeal and raisin cookies. YUM. Favorite Christmas song? O Come All Ye Faithful, when sung by a wonderful choir. And why do I love pugs? Because the last three pug puppies I met decided to constantly chew on my husband's goatee. SO CUTE.

Karen Pilcher said...

the collar and tie sets are adorable. My favorite Christmas song is SIlver Belles. remembere singing it with my mom and Christmas shopping on our decorated square in my home town. Love those memories of every year walking, singing, laughing and being meery with my mama

ILuvBNaMom said...

That doggie collar and tie set is adorable! We have a 7 month old puppy (boxer mix), I hope they fit her, if I win! She can wear one for Christmas!!! We don't have pugs but I think they are the cutest dogs. My husband is into slightly bigger dogs, while I'd prefer a smaller one.

My favorite cookie is anything with chocolate and my favorite Christmas song is Celebrate Me Home by Kenny Loggins.

Terri said...

Love these!
Favorite cookie: raspberry jam thumbprints
Christmas song: We Three Kings
Why I love Pugs: They are too cute and have a great personality--also they snore! : )

AM said...

Fave cookie- oatmeal raisin
fav christmas song- Mary Did YOu know
